  New Privilege nutrients of Human Gut Microbiota from Western Diet (ref: SF18/APP/Munoz)
  Dr J Munoz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human large bowel contains ~1013 bacteria, referred to as the human gut microbiota or HGM. There is considerable interest in deploying prebiotic and probiotic strategies to maximise the impact of the HGM on human health.
  Elucidating the protein interaction network of serum- and glucocorticoid-regulated kinase 1 (SGK1)
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) pathway is a master regulator of numerous cellular phenotypes associated with cancer including cell survival, proliferation, growth, altered metabolism and malignant transformation.
  Metabolic reprogramming and chemotherapy resistance in triple-negative breast cancer
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Treatment options for the triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) subtype of breast cancer are limited to conventional chemotherapy agents.
  Establishing 3D meningioma culture model
  Prof OH Hanemann, Dr D Hilton, Dr E Ercolano
Application Deadline: 2 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

REF number. 18-19-010 R2. The University of Plymouth Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry (FoMD) are pleased to consider applications from highly motivated PhD candidates with an interest in cancer and knowledge of in vitro models, to join their exciting and rapidly expanding programme of internationally-rated research.
  Eukaryotic gene expression: understanding the role of UPF1 in global mRNA processing and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  Dr S Brogna
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project’s specific objective is to study the molecular role(s) that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in RNA processing. UPF1 is a key player in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), it is universally conserved in eukaryotes and is essential to the development of many organisms [1].
  Nanoencapsulation facilitated targeted drug delivery (QISU19SF)
  Dr S Qi, Dr M Alexander
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanoencapsulation of therapeutic agents in nanocarriers is an effective way for delivering ‘problematic’ drugs such as those with poorly aqueous solubility and biologics which are prone to degradation.
  A bioinformatics approach to understanding protein solubility tags
  Dr J Warwicker, Dr R Curtis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The crowded environment of a cell cytoplasm reveals that proteins and other biological molecules co-exist at high macromolecular concentrations.
  Hijacking of host cellular functions and metabolism in MRSA pathogenesis
  Dr M Letek, Dr V Behrends, Dr Y Calle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from potential PhD candidates to work at the Department of Life Sciences, University of Roehampton, supervised by Dr Michal Letek, Dr Volker Behrends, and Dr Yolanda Calle-Patino.
  Functional magnetic nanomaterials as the next generation of bioproducts for healthcare applications
  Dr A Fernandez-Castane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A three-year project for doctoral studies is offered to support the application of highly motivated graduates willing to pursue their PhD studies.
  Developing a clinical tool to quantitatively assess and monitor upper limb and shoulder function in clinical and home settings
  Dr A Shaheen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Upper limb and shoulder disorders are poorly defined, diagnosed and rehabilitated. Current management of these disorders is focussed on the prescription of physiotherapeutic treatments, yet the efficacy of such treatments is not well established and the prognosis of patients with shoulder disorders is very poor.
